Wedding are special! Two becoming as one is very special! No doubt, it will be a day to remember! Enjoy it! Weddings are just as unique as the people are that make up the marriage. It may range from large to small, expensive or inexpensive, formal or casual. However, decisions have to be made. Following are some tips and tricks others have found valuable to make those decisions easier:
When you are planning to tie the knot, pick your bridesmaids in advance. This will help you to take away a lot of the pressure that you will face when you are getting married. Make sure that your picks are very personal to you and are key people in your life.
For an outdoor wedding, try to place your guests away from staring into the sun. The sun should be on your guests’ backs so that they are not blinded while trying to watch you take your vows. You can also try planning your wedding where the sun will benefit you, by providing a beautiful sunset behind where you and the groom will be standing.
Before you leave for your wedding, make sure that you have a solid breakfast that is filled with a lot of carbs. Typically, you will not eat until later on in the day and will be under a lot of stress, which can drain your energy very fast. A proper meal will combat a haggard feeling.
Take your time in writing your vows, they’re personal and meaningful and must have effort put into them. Marriage is a life long commitment that requires love, sacrifice and the art of compromise and forgiveness. Use your vows to publicly declare the love and dedication you feel for your beloved.
Try to arrange transportation from the airport to the hotel or resort for guests arriving for your destination wedding. At worst, have your guests meet up and form groups so they can share the limo or cab costs. It’s already costing them a lot to be there; try to help them as much as possible!
If you find yourself getting stressed in the process of planning your impending nuptials, consider taking some time away from the process for a bit of rest and relaxation. A day at the beach for the bride and groom or a day spent doing something you enjoy can help replenish you.
If you are going to be spending a lot of money on various items for your wedding, use a rewards credit card. This card will allow you to earn a lot of points, which you can use on the flight for your honeymoon. Make sure to pay on time to avoid interest fees.
Consider a disc jockey instead of a live band for your reception. A band can often be very expensive, and the type of music they can play will be limited. A disc jockey can often save you money, and their playlist is only limited by your own imagination.
Make your own wedding invitations or have a relative or friend do it. More than likely you have a budding artist in you circle of acquaintances that would love to try their hand as some hand made paper invitations. Maybe another friend does calligraphy? Ask them to help. That’s what friends are for!
Do not invite everyone that you have ever met to your wedding. If you go out of your way to invite people that wouldn’t have even known you were getting married, you will just be wasting your time and money. They really don’t care if they barely know you, so why spend extra money for them to come?
Meanwhile bachelor and bachelorette parties are very popular in today’s society; consider what strain it may bring to your relationship before you have even wed. Instead, opt to have a thank you party for all of the wedding participants and bring everyone together in an open event. This avoids any questionable outcomes of a bachelor or bachelorette party and makes everyone else feel included.
Hopefully, the above tips and tricks have helped you with some decisions to be made regarding your wedding! No doubt, getting married is a special occasion! A day you will not forget! It may be large or small, expensive or inexpensive, formal or casual – regardless it will be special, because it is your day! Congratulations!
